Summer Adventure Camp
Would you like your children to investigate crimes like a CSI specialist, learn what it takes to become a mad scientist, figure out what is takes to be the next top CEO, or ride the Hogwarts express into a world of magic and mystery? Our campers will find out about these engaging subjects and so much more at Smart Fit Kids Adventure Camp!
Smart Fit Kids Adventure Camp is a traditional day program, combining exciting team building activities, leadership development, with adventurous trips—each specifically designed for our campers. Our Adventure camp’s motivation is to unite students and help them to grow together. When they arrive at our camp, they will be challenged to accomplish what they have never done before while learning and having a lot of fun.
Our staff provides a supportive, encouraging environment where our campers can make new friends easily and explore their curiosities. With an open mind and positive attitude, our campers will truly have an unforgettable summer.
On our nature and water days, once we reach our destination, children are encouraged to engage in guided activities and self-directed play. They will learn to create their own adventures, fueled by their imaginations. They will discover endless possibilities with creative minds working alongside them.
On our cultural excursion days, we will split into small groups. The Adventure Camp staff will focus on bringing children together, helping them to develop their teamwork skills, giving them the tools they will need to explore and accomplish their challenges.
While many new campers will embark on this journey, we will focus on providing every kid with individual attention. We believe that children should always be safe. We are fully committed to our campers, providing them with the right amount of space and direction and materials, so they can learn, so they can grow, so they can discover new things in an engaged environment.
Our adventure field trips include: Swimming, Wizard of Oz Park, Splash park, Ninja Be, NASA Space Center, MPT TV station, Port Discovery, Terrapin Adventures, the National Inventors Hall of Fame, Mini-golf and driving range, Laser tag, The Naval Academy, and various parks in the county.
